of the united states. and of western capitalism. it's very, very threatening. and i think that that's why you've had the billionaire class. you know, the minute barack obama -- i would actually say rather gently suggested that the millionaires and the billionaires should pay a little bit more, you had immediate cries of class warfare from the plutocrats, and very emotional. you know, there was an activist investor who sent an e-mail to his friends, the subject line is, battered wives. and in the e-mail, he compares mse and his fellow multimillionaires to battered wives who are being beaten by the president. he actually uses those words. >> and i thought it was really interesting, in your book, how you pointed out that bill clinton himself responded to obama's criticism by saying, you know, i would have done it a little bit differently. i think, you know, you can't attack these people for their success. and i think that's very relevant, because if you go back in time it wasn't always this way, but i think the shift really began with clinton and the new democrats. i think after, you know, walte

is the former united states senator from pennsylvania who won the iowa caucuses in january before losing the republican nomination to mitt romney. >>> the irony of a group of judges taking the one bulwark of freedom, the constitution. to use it to destroy the second bulwark of freedom, virtue, is truly a corrupt act. the people of iowa have an opportunity to say no. we are no longer going to stand by and let the elites, who believe they know best how to write the laws and change the constitution, run roughshod over the rights of people. >>> iowa is often a bellwether state for national politics. so when out-of-state partisans and out-of-state money combine to try and take down and take apart a highly esteemed court in the heartland, you never know who's next. that's why we wanted to talk to a couple of iowans who have organized the non- partisan group justice not politics. they're fighting to protect the independence of their supreme court against efforts to vote justices off the bench. sally pederson is a democrat and the state's lieutenant governor from 1999 to 2007. she's past chair o
